Kiran Desai Wins Man Booker Prize

On Tuesday night, Kiran Desai was announced as the winner of this year's Man Booker Prize for her novel The Inheritance of Loss.

Kiran Desai also happens to be the daughter of one of my favourite writers, Anita Desai, so I'm happy for Kiran's win. I haven't read The Inheritance of Loss or her first novel Hullabaloo in the Guava Garden.

i don't think I've read anything by Anita Desai, though I've certainly heard of her.

Aba Boy, let me know what Inheritance of Loss is like.

Everchange, you might like some of Anita Desai's books especially In the Clear Light of Day.
